Bad Swipe (Billionaire's Club Book 12) by Elise Faber

Stef blamed the dating app. She saw his picture—his smile, the rugged line of his jaw, the way the man could fill out a suit, and like an idiot, she fell a bit in love with him.

Idiot because no one ever really looked like their profile pic. Idiot also because if the man did look like his profile pic then he certainly wasn’t going to be into a science geek who binged old Sci-Fi shows on the regular, and whose longest relationship was with her golden retriever named Fred.

But in a night of drunken insanity, she swiped right on the picture she’d been drooling over for months. Then in a morning of hangover unpleasantness, she saw that he’d swiped right, too. And suddenly, she found herself on a date with the man of her dreams. The only question was whether or not he lived up to them.



Dirty Toe Drag (Nashville Assassins: Next Generation #6) by Toni Aleo

Stella Brooks is a woman who knows what she wants. From her first glimpse of Paris Fashion Week at the tender age of eleven, she has only ever wanted to be a designer. Hardworking and dedicated, she knows she can make a success of it. Until…she is driven to trade fashion for frosting, a move that makes her soul sing but shakes her confidence in her decision-making to her core.

And when you add in that her sexy hookup from her older brother’s wedding is sniffing around again, things are about to get out of hand. Wesley McMillan seems different, no longer putting off love-’em-and-leave-’em vibes, which only adds to Stella’s emotional chaos.

Wesley McMillan has had a thing for Stella since she first served him a fried pickle platter at her mom’s restaurant. He may have only ordered a snack, but he found he wanted a whole meal—in the form of Stella Brooks. How could he not? She’s stunning, smart, and confident. She knows her worth and what she wants, and she owns whatever room she’s in, the ultimate turn-on for him.

He just has two problems: Stella is his best friend’s sister, and she thinks he’s a playboy. The first issue, Wes is willing to face off against. As for the second…Wes doesn’t blame Stella for her assumption. He used to love to play the field, but now that he has his demons under control, he is ready to show her and the world that he is worthy of her love. Wes may be known for his sick signature move on the ice, but will his dirty toe drag be enough to score Stella’s heart?



The Zone (Rochester Riot #4) by Colleen Charles

She's turned demanding to speak to the manager into an art form.

But her name's not Karen, it's Bristol.

And her bossy streak makes me want to risk it all.

During my teammate Cole's wild bachelor party, a sassy blonde puts an unwelcome damper on our raunchy fun.

After just one look... I don't even know what hit me.

She storms into my reckless playboy world with her platinum blonde hair, pouty lips and curves for days.

For the first time since I was drafted, I tee it up, take a swing, and -

Big. Fat. Miss.
